Angela Perrault Kirschner enjoys education, outdoor activities, and most of all, spending time with her family and friends. Angela grew up in Waterford, Michigan, before moving to Las Vegas, Nevada, in her junior year of high school. She then attended Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan, where she earned a Business Management-Marketing degree in just 3 years. After graduation, Angela worked for an advertising firm in the Detroit area. Later, she discovered her love for teaching and went back to school earning Masters in Education degree from the University of Phoenix. Angela has lived in the Phoenix area since 2004 where she taught in a special needs preschool and taught middle school science and math. Here, Angela earned a unique Leadership award from SAE International for her work pairing General Motor retirees with her 7th grade Science students to learn about gears in a fun and memorable way. While teaching, Angela also enjoyed coaching basketball. Her passion for education has increased even more since she had her son, Ethan, whom she adores spending time with and reading books to. While she misses the classroom, she has taken up triathlons, writing books, and teaching Ethan.
